So I guess it’s been about 8 days since my last post. Sorry! You find yourself in bed with a nasty cold with symptoms too gruesome to describe, then there’s a nasty ice storm leaving the kids at home for a few days and the next thing you know it’s been a week!
I’ve been working on that second sock and I will have a progress report soon. When I’ve been unable to knit (sleeping baby on my chest) I’ve been reading some fun books about ghost legends in New York State. And then, of course, there is Lost, which just started up again last week, much to my excitement. Which is a great segue into my best news: we ditched our old satellite system and got a new one all hooked up! And it works! We have tv again! Not only that, but they had some nice flat screens on sale at Target so we picked one up for our bedroom. We’ve never had a tv in our bedroom before. Not one in 13 years of marriage. But, since 95% of the time it’s just me and Oona in our bedroom, and with argumentative kids who will one day be surly teenagers wanting to watch crappy teen dramas, we decided it was high time to have our own tv sanctuary. Great for those lazy icy days when you’re still not quite feeling well and just want to snuggle up with your favorite baby and watch Spongebob.
